ABSTRACT In some projects, the R &amp; D appears to be a failure, and according to traditional methods of encouragement motivation, it is hard to get any awards for the R &amp; D team. But there is a valuable option implied in it. This article discusses the method of real options to encourage R &amp; D team when the enterprises can not achieve the desired economic benefit in the case of high-risk project or the immature market. The process of method includes: Identify the real option type of high-risk projects, Design the incentive mechanism and Design specific exercise ways.
